"I am beyond impressed with how The Denny Haney book has turned out. Big Up to my brother from another mother Scott Alexander for pulling off the impossible. You’ve captured Denny’s life & magic perfectly with style and class. Denny would be so proud!"

-Puck

"Excellent job! The biography of Denny is great and the explanations of the routines are superb - really a textbook of how to present classic stand-up material. I'm also glad you didn't bowdlerize Denny's comments. You've captured his persona and spirit, and that's a tough thing to do."

-Mike Close

"It looks terrific and I look forward to enjoying it. Thank-you ever so much. And above all: well done. Thanks for doing justice to your mentor."

-Jamy Swiss

"Be prepared to find yourself transported to various places; Scott’s writing is that good. The places you will go, the things you will see, the people you will meet - it will be like standing next to Denny. I’m savoring each chapter, limiting myself to only 1 or 2 per day. This way I can extend my last days with Denny. Scott Alexander has outdone himself with this one and far exceeded Denny’s expectations."

-Chuck Thomas

ABOUT THE BOOK

This project was a massive undertaking and no stone has been left unturned when it comes to Denny's life, legacy and the magic he performed over his career. All of his routines are described and taught in painstaking detail and the biography portion spans twenty-eight chapters going in depth into the trials and tribulations he encountered throughout his life. From the early days at Phil Thomas' Yogi Magic Mart in Baltimore, to the trenches of the Vietnam War every detail is revealed. His early beginnings in the 1970's with Lee are explored in detail, as well as their painful breakup and the launch of the new Denny & Lee show with Minh Dang.

Denny's thoughts are word for word on the page, captured in over forty hours of interviews by Scott Alexander, as if Denny is speaking directly to you. Some of this footage is shared on Volume Four of the companion Denny DVD Series.
